Anything by the Arrogant Worms, though most of their songs are pretty Canadian specific. Anyone would get this one, though -
Carrot Juice is Murder

Listen up brothers and sisters come hear my desperate tale
I speak of our friends of nature trapped in the dirt like a jail
Vegetables live in oppression, served on our tables each night
This killing of veggies is madness, I say we take up the fight
Salads are only for murderers, coleslaw's a fascist regime
Don't think that they don't have feelings, just cause a radish can't scream

Chorus:
I've heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that's a real crime)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
It's time to stop all this gardening (it's dirty as hell)
Let's call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)

I saw a man eating celery, so I beat him black and blue
If he ever touches a sprout again, I'll bite him clean in two
I'm a political prisoner, trapped in a windowless cage
Cause I stopped the slaughter of turnips by killing five men in a rage
I told the judge when he sentenced me, "This is my finest hour,
I'd kill those farmers again just to save one more cauliflower"

Chorus

How low as people do we dare to stoop,
Making young broccolis bleed in the soup?
Untie your beans, uncage your tomatoes
Let potted plants free, don't mash that potato!

I've heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
Watching their skins being peeled (fates in the stir-fry are sealed)
Grated and steamed with no mercy (you fat gourmet slob)
How do you think that feels? (leave them out in the field)
Carrot juice constitutes murder (V8's genocide)
Greenhouses prisons for slaves (yes, your composts are graves)
It's time to stop all this gardening (take up macrame)
Let's call a spade a spade
(is a spade, is a spade, is a spade, is a spade......)

Can antone direct me to Bob Hudson tracks? I've fond memories of The Newcastle song, The Librarian , Johnathan Livingstone Budgerigar, Girls of Our Town. I can't seem to track them down anywhere. Any lead is a good lead.

Ah Bob Hudson - quite a popular man amongst the discerning Australians here. But alas it seems it's hard to get hold of nowadays but you could try a record shop gearing towards folk music. Newcastle song was Copyrighted in 1973 MCA music.

How about Shaddup You Face from way back in 1981? Quite novel.
Another for a giggle was Farewell Aunty Jack (I'll rip yer bloody arms off)!
And a band I'd never heard of 'til I met my husband, The Smiths, a couple of good ones like Girlfriend in a Coma . . . .
